Chapter 3
Fostering a Culture of Change


How does a team leader create a team environment that maximizes excitement, creativity and a positive attitude, and minimizes the dampening effects of rigid resistance? How do you, as someone who has to adapt to change, stay flexible, keep your perspective, and capitalize on the creative opportunities that change can bring?

This chapter attempts to build the skills of the improviser (literally, “adapting to the unforeseen”) in leaders and team members. This visceral experience of adapting to change situations generates support, a spirit of play, a sense of empathy for what it feels like to change, and most of all, an excitement toward taking risks and achieving new results.
